We are so excited about this month’s Member Make challenge! A few people requested that we make crepe paper lilac flowers. So that’s what we will be crafting live today at 11:00 a.m. PT. If you want to join the live workshop and craft along with us, make sure to join our crafting community!
Because this flower is a bit more complex, we sent our members the tools, materials, and flower pattern ahead of time. They are also listed below. If you can’t join our live workshop this morning, we will post the video below later today so you can watch it on your own time.
Ready to get started? Just scroll on down to see what you need for this month’s DIY challenge.
We can’t wait to show you how to make these crepe paper lilac flowers today! Overall, they are an easy paper flower to make. But there are lots of little flowers involved so it’s pretty time-consuming.
Since there are so many flowers to form, a cutting machine will come in handy if you have one! For this project, we cut our crepe paper with our Cricut Maker and SVG file. But of course, you can also cut your lilacs by hand with our PDF flower template.
When you’re ready to make your flower, just follow the steps below. We will keep the video up indefinitely, so you can watch it as many times as you need to while crafting your crepe paper lilac flowers. And, of course, reach out to us if you have any questions.
Happy crafting, friends!
